I had selected this SX- 70 photo from Bjørn Sterri’s portfolio and held it in my hand, not knowing that it represented a treasure trove of riches – family photographs, obsessively taken day after day, year after year...” “Father and son – cheek by jowl and face to face. Dad and the next generation, side by side. A reminder that the world turns, leaving nothing behind, nothing unchanged.” From the introduction by Barbara Hitchcock, Former Director, The Polaroid Collection

This is work of seductive beauty: self expressive, elegant and eloquent. Sterri takes us to a consideration of values that are both life affirming and vital.” Robin Gillanders, Lecturer in Photography, Edinburgh Napier University
